    This weekend there was a con. Like usual, it was an excuse to get together with local area prop collectors and hang out. We were still drinking and reminiscing at 5:00 am so you know it was a good time. My houseguests, Funky Jedi and Mostly Harmless gave this to me so I had to show it off. It's a Seburo M-5 from Ghost in the Shell.

    For those of you who don't know, Seburo is a fictional small arms manufacturer commonly found in many of the works of manga artist Masamune Shirow. He frequently attributes the Seburo name to advanced, high-velocity, small-caliber weapons.

    Seburo M5 is a medium-sized SA/DA handgun that fires 5.45 x 18 mm 7N7 cartridge used in the Russian PSM and OTs-23 pistols. M5 has an ambidextrous safety, and its magazine holds 20 rounds. Official sidearm of Motoko, Saito, Boma and possibly Paz.

    :eek I'm a pretty big Shirow fan. That is a beautiful piece.

    Hey Funky. Where do us mere mortals get Shirow guns?

    I skipped the con to go to the Stars game. It was an exciting, if frustrating, hockey game. At least the Stars put up enough of a fight to force overtime. I'm glad I got to be there.... even with the poor puck handling and equally poor passing :confused

    Sorry for getting off topic... about those Shirow guns?

    Even the grips are rubberized.

    I was really pleased the way this turned out, nothing but the best for my buddy Evan. :D

    I love the Seburo pistol and machine gun. Out of my financial reach for the moment, but some day...
